I've installed nod32 anti virus 4 and after several days I uninstall it using "revo uninstaller" and restart the pc. When I take a look at the program files I saw the folder of eset and it contains incomplete files of the anti virus and when i take a look in the task manager the anti virus is running. May someone tell me how to completely remove the anti virus. I tried to use nod32 removal tool, i tried to reinstall it again but it do not allow me to do so because there is an error that appear. Thank you for anybody that will help.

K, since no one posted I'll give an attempt to help you.

To REMOVE it. Go to Start>Control Panel> Add/Remove Programs. Find the anti-virus on the list there. Click remove, if that doesn't work...

To keep it from running go to start>run>msconfig then go to the startup tab, uncheck anything related to that program (so it doesn't open the program when you start your computer) then go on services tab, uncheck anything related to that program, reboot, go in task manager and see if the program is still running. This SHOULD keep it from running but it won't uninstall it. You should do that until you get further assistance from someone who can help you remove the program.

Download and run the ESET Removal Tool. Special note, This is an unofficial dutch language ESET removal tool but should work to remove the program regardless of language.

Before I've uninstall the anti virus there is a reminder not to uninstall it using add or remove program in the control panel. Now I try to take a look in the add or remove program or any uninstaller but I couldn't see the eset antivirus. I already use eset removal tool but still it doesn't work.

Did you FIRST follow ALL of these instructions from ESET

Click Start → All Programs → ESET → Uninstall. After you uninstall, you will need to restart your computer.
After restarting, confirm that you can see hidden files and folders by clicking Start → Control Panel → Folder Options → View and select the Show hidden files and folders option.
Click Start → My Computer and then navigate to and delete the following folders:

C:\Program Files\ESET
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\ESET
C:\Documents and Settings\%USER%\Application Data\ESET

Windows Vista and Windows 7 Users must delete the following folders:

C:\Program Files\ESET
C:\Program Data\ESET

They are very clear that all of the above instructions must be followed and if you did not then, no, the uninstall will not be complete.
Download and run a system scan and save the log with HiJackThis.
Post back here with that log.

Did you follow the instructions I posted for the removal of the ESET program?
Your computer is extremely infected. Please follow these steps exactly:
Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (MBA-M) to your Desktop.

* DoubleClick mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install MBA-M.
* Be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When MBA-M finishes, Notepad will open with the log. Please save it where you can find it easily. The log can also be opened by going to Start > All Programs > Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware > Logs > log-date.txt.

REBOOT after running MBA-M!

Then run a NEW HiJackThis scan and save the log. Post back here with the MBA-M log and the HiJackThis log.

Panel and restart the computer as prompted.
Click the Windows Start button.

Click OK.
On the left, expand the folder HKEY_CURRENT_USER and then expand Software.
